Bal Mahotsav – 2017
November 15, 2016
Dear Sir / Madam,
We are pleased to announce Bal Mahotsav 2017. This is one of the few pure cultural festivals in the city. All the events are focused on bringing out the best of Indian traditions. The spirit and comradeship makes children realize that winning is not the only goal but participation is equally important. Prempuri provides a stage to showcase the student’s talents through various competitions. We give large number of consolation prizes to encourage participation.
The theme for this year's competition is "Mera Bharat, Swachh Bharat". This will be our contribution towards the noble cause of promoting clean India. We want our young citizens to think that they can make a difference in promoting a clean and healthy environment. All competitions will have this as a central theme. We will talk, write, draw, make presentations, make street plays, all about how we can make India a hygienic and cleaner place to live in.
Bal Mahotsav attracts over 5000 participants every year. The events conducted in the festival are for group competitions as well as individual talent appreciation. Competitions range from dance, dramas, singing, craft, drawing, mahendi, flower arrangement, elocution, essay writing etc. Nearly 500+ prizes are to be won as well as trophies for schools.
